What is the difference between “Stream” and “Download”?

Clicking on start in the “Stream” column will automatically invoke your default audio recording player–Real Player, Windows Media Player, Winamp or QuickTime-and begin playing the recording you have selected. This method works best if you are using a dial-up modem rather than a cable modem or DSL service.

Clicking on the n.n MB entry in the “Download” column will place a copy of the chapel recording on your computer hard disk.

It takes over 45 minutes to download a chapel recording. Are there any shortcuts?

If you are using a dial-up modem it will take 45 minutes to 1 hour to download a typical chapel message. (It should be much faster if you have a cable modem or DSL service.) We recommend that modem users click on start in the “Stream” column to listen to the chapel recording rather than downloading a copy to their computer.

I am a current student a Westmont. May I listen to a chapel recording on the Web to make up a missed chapel?

The ability to “make up” chapels by listening to a recording of the chapel was discontinued several years ago.

I am having difficulty listening to chapel messages on the Web. Who may I speak with to obtain assistance?
